Mindset List (Class of 2017)

August 20th, 2013
Welcome to college, Class of 2017!

Beloit College has released its annual Mindset List (now in its 15th year). While it is important to note that this list does not wholly account for knowledge and experience, it does serve to capture a state of affairs–be it from popular culture, technology or political situation–within the lifespan of the traditional, incoming college student.

It certainly lends itself well to discussion and to reflection upon where we’ve been and where we may be heading. Visit the site to learn more about the authors and to explore the project’s media buzz.
And, I am reminded as I sip my own that to this incoming class, “Java has never been just a cup of coffee.”
Enjoy!
